Welcome to Disagree

I’m Justin Weinberg, and Disagree is my place online for occasional and brief thoughts on philosophy, life, and culture, and for sharing various things I find interesting.

The name for the site—“Disagree”—is the name of a project I’m working on about conflict, difference, and disagreement. Conflict, though it may sometimes have bad effects, is good in ways that aren’t widely appreciated, and disagreement is a particularly good form of conflict. Consensus and coherence, though sometimes useful, are overrated.

These are ideas I’ll return to in occasional subsequent posts. They’re unpopular and need defending. And they present some puzzles for figuring out what to believe, how to live, and how to understand society.

Of course, I don’t expect everyone to ultimately agree with me about these matters.

Alongside this thematic core, I plan to post on a variety of subjects, using the site in much the same way many people use social media nowadays—you know, like an old-school blog. I hope you find it of interest.
